The downtown Manhattan A/V specialty dealer is mounting a cross-promotion with Century 21, a popular New York area clothing discounter which operates a department store-sized showroom just blocks away.
Under the promotion, shoppers who spend $100 at one retailer will receive a $10 gift card that can be redeemed at the other. The deal runs today through Sunday.

The shop is located above J&R’s TV department at 31 Park Row, otherwise known as Store No. 8, within a previously underutilized space.
